    Buddy Guy + Kenny Wayne Shepherd: The title of Buddy Guy’s latest album says it all: The Blues Is Alive and Well.

In the case of O.A.R., two simple words suffice: “The Mighty.”

Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way.” So says Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos, when describing the songs on the band’s new album, Gates of Gold.

    Dawes + Margo Price: Once known for their honest approach to classic sounds, Dawes have grown into something different: a forward-thinking, boundary-pushing band for the 21st century, willing to follow inspiration wherever it leads. In 2015, Margo Price was a country underdog just trying to keep enough gas in the tank to get to the next gig, but by the end of 2016, she was one of the genre’s most celebrated new artists and a ubiquitous presence on late night television and at major festivals around the world.

    An Evening with CAKE: CAKE’s adherence to their original guiding principles has only grown stronger.

    JJ Grey & Mofro + Jonny Lang: From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. It is hard to believe that at 36 years old Jonny Lang has already had a successful career for two decades. Easier to believe when you learn he released his first platinum record at 15 — an age when many young people are just beginning to play music.
